    I came here in October last year after playing the same guitar and amp rig for >25 years ... Yamaha SA2000 & Mesa/Boogie are still my main squeeze. Anyway, I had purchased a cheap but really nice Washburn and was considering putting my sons 490r/498T Gibson SG Standard pickups in it since he had changed to 57/57+ ... still using the 498T. I figured I'd get a fair assessment of those pickups here ... that's why I came.

    Since that time I have bought and successfully moded 4 guitars ... Schecter Tele, Washburn WI62, G&L Legacy (only needed shielding) and the latest Washburn WI66 P-90 Gold Top. These 5 electric guitars plus the 2 acoustics cover an amazing amount of ground. I have learned a lot and hope I have helped a little too.

    But I think I'm done ... even though I still don't have an SG ... but I bought one for my son ... so there you go.

    I will post a clip later this week ... new Lollar P-90s in the Washburn Gold Top. Then I'm going to ease up on internet activity a bit I think and begin concentrating on my playing and recording.

    Tried stepping back earlier this year but i kept coming up with new projects. But i'm going to push back once again. Hoping to go another 25 years with the current rig.

    Man it's been a blast though ... one of the cooler forums of the half a dozen that I visit. I stop by nearly every day ... too much actually.

    Anyway thanks again for the help. My rig is smokin' 8)

    Hey DM,
    Is the Yamaha SA 2000 a sort of double cut Les Paul looking thing?

    My dealer has a 2000 and a 3000 if I recall, and they are the HEAVIEST guitars I ever picked up.
    Mahogany back, Maple top, fantastic build quality, and sustaaaaaaaainnnnnnnnnnnn...............

    These were made around 1980, part of a collection they bought, near flawless.
    Very cool.

    Don't be a stranger, come back and see us. O0

    Your describing an SGB-2000 which is a really thick double cutaway LP-like solid body. Heaviest guitar on the planet ... sustain for days. Mine is a semi-hollow body (ES335 like) guitar. Well ths guitar worked better for me than all my LPs and the 335 I had.

    I wish I'd have bought one of each in '80 ... I had a cherry sunburst SGB-2000 in the left hand and my tobacco sunburst SA-2000 in my right hand. Only one pocket full of money though. :cry:
